MARGIE HENDRIX - PACKIN' UP

Margie Hendrix, an original Raelette, was the female voice heard on two of the most massive tracks ever cut by Ray Charles- "Hit The Road Jack" and "Night Time Is The Right Time"; both are absolute peaks in the recorded history of female vocals.

After birthing one of Ray's children, Margie was fired from The Raelettes in 1964 and continued recording until her tragic, early death in 1973.

This track (along with The Raelettes' "One Room Paradise") shows off the incredible power of this woman's voice. The song, written by Margie, is full of the fire of her former boss' best, and features unbelievable vocals, a fantastic guitar solo and TWO incredible drum break down sections. All in less than two minutes. What a record!!!

from 1965...

I agree, what a record. I've never heard that before but I have been a Margie Hendrix fan for a VERY long time.

Thanks
